    Default Need Red Dot Recommendation

    I just bought an AK-9 pistol. The sites are too low to get a proper sight picture if the Kak blade is shouldered. Any recommendations on a red dot tube sight? I'm looking for something similar in size/price to the Sig Romeo 5 or Vortex Sparc.

    Aimpoint is excellent but it probably costs more than you want to spend.

    Have you looked at the new Primary Arms Cyclops? If you are not dead set on a tube style, the Holosun HS510 is really nice too.

    I enjoy using my sparc II, does what its made to do and so far seems to hold up.

    But, as always if you are going to be expecting mil quality or life depends on it sort of expectations, spend the coin for a quality one. If its a range toy etc, then the lower cost guys work great.

    Then just get the sig romeo 5? I have one my CZ Scorpion and I am a big fan. Cheap. Holds zero. Great red dot.

    I second the sig Romeo 5 I have 2 and I love them , on the flip side I ordered this to try for the hell of it, price was right so was the warranty. Right now they have everything on sale for 10% off everything (code Laborday10) or $15% off of 150.00 or more (laborday15). Currently have one of their 2 stage triggers seems to work, and seem well made.

    I can tell you the sig is perfect Wish I could tell you more about the at3 tactical set up but I haven't gotten it yet to put through the paces.

    One more thing currently there's 20% off on Ebay for some items (code justrelax) they have some options for the sale like the vortex strikefire.

    Kinda feel like I should be posting all this on the share deals too.

    Here's another option

    Big fan of the Holosun HS403B. What sold me was the auto on/off, battery life (5 years of continuous use) and it's parallax-free.
